Learning is a gift, even when pain is our teacher. Try leaving more room in your life to breathe. Be teachable, and know you don't need to know all the answers. Read this affirmation to help you keep learning and hoping and loving, even after everything.
“We are human. We are not perfect. We are alive. We try things. We make mistakes. We stumble. We rise again. We try again. We keep learning. We keep growing. And we are thankful for this priceless opportunity called life.” – Unknown
Grow where you go. And don't be afraid to go where you'll grow.
A comfort zone is enticing and necessary, but that’s not where we grow. We need to know our boundaries, and we also need to explore new territories. We only discover our preferences by encountering what we don’t want.
It’s when you’re down and discouraged, frustrated and frenzied, baffled and bothered, or bored and couldn’t be bothered, that you know for sure you’re in the right place to start something new.
What’s buried in the rubble? Is there a better way?
When you show up for what’s showing up for you, and you acknowledge that you’re inherently blessed with the capacity to learn something new, you’re better equipped to learn. And grow. And flourish. And let go of whatever isn't yours to hold anymore.
Renew your devotion to what's new, changing, and expanding; you, too, will expand.
To learn is to celebrate the wealth of possibilities that life has to offer.
You’re learning how whole you already are.
You're always learning and unlearning. That's life.
With enough time and devotion, you can learn what you need to know in order to be where you most need to be.
You’re already whole, as you are, as you “should be.” You’re here now, learning, trying, doing, being.
Your needing and wanting to learn doesn’t mean you’re incomplete right now. It means you’re in the process of becoming more aligned with who you are.
You're no less than anyone else. You have your own path and lessons to unravel.
Keep learning, wondering, questioning, honoring the “In-Between” places of what you know and don't know.
Curiosity is a gift. It’s the gift of adventure, of discovery, of hope, of life.
Life doesn't demand that you know everything, just that you stay open to change.
Let yourself be humbled by the mysteries. There’s still room to live there.
There’s more than one way to do anything, dream anything, have anything, and be anything. Embrace that, and let that be how you live your life. The unknowns won't be so scary, so dark. And joy won't seem so far away, because you know there are lots of ways to feel peace, even as you grow.
